Fourgig East – O gauge – Ian Mellors

Fourgig East makes it’s sixth appearance at the show after a rest last year so that Summat Colliery could make an appearance. Regular visitors will have seen it grow from a small demonstration track to the layout it is today. Based loosely on Ian Morton’s OO Shake the Box layout it is my first foray into O gauge modelling.

Featuring all hand built track (mostly at the 2012 show) and Scalescenes structures it demonstrates that O gauge need not be expensive – the ply used for the baseboards was reclaimed from packing crates due to be discarded where I work!

New this year will be my new Hymek diesel locomotive built from a Triang “Big Big” toy loco, much modified and featuring DCC sound.
